This project concerns the development of a joint curriculum in applied mathematics between Université Grenoble-Alpes (UGA) and several academic institutions in Myanmar. Since a few years, Myanmar has opened up to international cooperation, particularly in science and education. Its universities have been modernized and are expected to play a greater role in the shaping of the nation's future. In strategic areas such as scientific computing, data analysis, numerical modelling, which require specific infrastructure and qualified instructors, they have not yet reached standard international training capacities.

The objective of this proposal if threefold:

Provide a series of theoretical and practical hands-on courses in applied mathematics and numerical computing to undergraduate students of mathematics and computer science, of the same level as those offered at UGA.

Provide high-level specialized training for instructors in Myanmar, who will deliver the courses locally.

Encourage some Myanmar students in applied mathematics and computer science to enrol in UGA masters programs.

Common courses

According to our objective, we propose to progressively introduce IT and numerical mathematics skills into the Myanmar curriculum according to our International Program in Applied Mathematics (MIN-Int)
For the achievement of this purpose, we propose :
to develop a course platform,
to carry out on-site training missions for Myanmar teachers and graduate students, according to the organization and schedule presented in the next tabs.
-- The proposed courses are similar to UGA courses.

These common courses should be included in the curriculum of the involved Myanmar Universities and will be validated by UGA.

Myanmar students in applied mathematics who have validated these courses should be able to enroll in UGA master's programs, i.e. MSIAM

Student and teacher mobility

The proposal includes one-semester scholarships for Myanmar students at UGA, two-month scholarships for UGA students in Myanmar and one-week visits to UGA for teachers from Myanmar.

Implementation of common courses

According to our objective, we propose to proceed as follows.

Introduce one new common course at each semester.

For each new course:

1) UGA teachers edit on the course platform all the teaching material: academic course, exercises, lab-works, mini-project with all detailed solutions.
2) Appropriation of these materials by the Myanmar teams (with remote UGA support)
3) Training mission for Myanmar teachers and graduate students (by UGA teachers).
4) Myanmar teachers teach to Myanmar students:
  -- First year : independent Myanmar course.
  -- Feedback and cross validation (UGA & Myanmar).
  -- Next year: common course with UGA, with double diploma.
